Turkish train hit by mine blast - security sources
A cargo train was hit by a mine blast on a track in southeast Turkey on Saturday, and three railway workers were injured, security sources said.

The train was crossing a bridge when the mine exploded and two wagons fell into a stream below, the sources said.

State news agency Anatolian quoted the governor of Mus province, Erdogan Bektas, as blaming PKK militants for the attack.

In the eastern province of Bingol, one PKK militant was killed and two Turkish troops were injured in a clash, the General Staff said on its website.

Ankara, which like the European Union and United States considers the PKK a terrorist organisation, blames the group for some 40,000 deaths since 1984.
